Common Conditions and Injuries of the Shoulder
The mobile shoulder joint is susceptible to a variety of injuries and conditions that develop over time.
Rotator Cuff Tears
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint and keeping the arm bone in place in the socket. Tears in the rotator cuff are usually located at or near where the tendon connects to the bone. Injury to the rotator cuff can cause a dull ache that worsens when you sleep on the affected side.
This condition is common among athletes and individuals over 40. It involves pain and swelling of the shoulder and can cause pain when the arm is elevated. Shoulder tendonitis can develop with repetitive motions or excessive velocities or loads.
Technically known as an acromio-clavicular joint sprain, a separated shoulder is one of the most common shoulder injuries. It can be caused by a fall directly onto the shoulder or the point of the elbow. Separated shoulder occurs frequently in sports such as football, snowboarding, soccer, cycling, and skiing.
